|Time to update your OS, fellas!|
For months, the characters orbiting mayoral candidate Mike DeFusco have loudly bragged about how much money they've raised. They've bragged how their money makes them unbeatable. They've even leaked "$250K was pledged" for DeFusco to InsiderNJ.
Seeing is believing... so...
Where the hell is it?
Then yesterday, GA found out that Mike DeFusco for Mayor's Treasurer is a 71 year-old man from Clifton, NJ. The senior citizen, Pedro M. Gonzalez, may be related to Hoboken politico Eduardo Gonzalez, the twice-failed Hoboken Council Candidate who currently backs DeFusco.
Let's recap. The candidate and his backers freely boast about hundreds of thousands raised, publicize it in the media, then somebody's out-of-town, septuagenarian father lands on Mike DeFusco for Mayor's D-1 Form as Treasurer...
This raises questions!
Why would a high profile Hoboken mayoral campaign with supposed access to big money tap a B-string politico's out-of-town daddy for Treasurer? Especially a campaign that's been blowing it's own horn for months... bullying established politicians and newbies alike; it's not a timid operation.
What is going on?
GA tapped an old Dark Side source for some insight. Here goes:
It's a sign of trouble when someone is placed in that position. None of the Big Boys volunteered THEIR relatives to rubber stamp checks, deposits, and reports. They never do. They always find some innocent dupe. Eduardo is a sycophant. This suggests that the campaign is moving developer $ and can't have a discreet function responsible for compliance. It suggests I.E.$ is coming in. It allows them to take money, cut checks, make deposits etc as per the campaign. In other words, a rubber stamp Treasurer. Their strength is I.E.$. FOLLOW THE MONEY. Their donors will get jammed up and outed down the road. .The recklessness is hard to believe.Well....
Whose fault is it that a white, hot spotlight has been directed on Mike DeFusco for Mayor's money operation?
It's Mike DeFusco for Mayor's fault!
The whole DeFusco gang has been so giddy about their alleged cash-tsunami, swaggering around Hoboken like drunks, bragging and bullying other candidates to drop out.
What a reckless bunch.
Thank you, Team DeFusco , for letting all of Hoboken know you have access to big money.
Now We the People have a right to know about your geyser of cash: who, where from and how much.
